All of us, at least once in our lives, have experienced our parents hollering at us for sitting idle. When they see us roaming around unnecessarily or sitting without any work, they seemingly ask don't we have better things to do? We always take it as unneeded screaming and fail to realize the deeper meaning it holds. Life spent doing constructive work, is life well spent. The great dramatist Shakespeare rightly observed that life should be measured by deeds, not years. Age is no criterion for the meaning of life. It is the actions, good deeds which give meaning to life and make man immortal. Long life is desired by all, but if one does not do any noble deeds, then such a life has no worth. Great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Abraham Lincoln, Swami Vivekananda, Mother Teresa and many others are remembered even after so many years after their passing. People still take inspiration from their lifestyles and preachings. It is only the great deeds of these leaders that have inspired many generations. A lily flower lives just for a day, but it is remembered for its fragrance and sweetness. Respect is earned by actions and not acquired by years. Existence becomes exciting when it is lived for others or when it does something beneficial to mankind. We generally work for the whole day, earn money and spend it on our needs. These are some common things that all do, but we should all do some noble deeds as well. We should share our smile, advice, cheer, and help with our fellow beings. These things may give them happiness and they may remember us when we are not around. Hence the saying, "We live in deeds, not in years," proves to be true.
